I haven’t updated on my health journey lately.
It has become a bit of a stale-mate.
Hiking the hills and then trying to begin a running journey has, in turn, given me a set back. A knee injury.
So for weeks I was more like a slug than a marathon runner wanna-be. I learned some patience, and how to put myself in 1st gear. Apparently, on a daily basis, I’d say I am at a constant 3rd gear, just simply going, going, going…. well, not.so.much.now. In the meantime, my amazingly encouraging cousin signed me up for the Color Run 5K. How exciting! Amazingly enough, my knee healed up just enough to walk that run, cautiously mind you, but I did it. And I got some fun hot pink sunglasses to boot!
Now I have another set back. The same knee injury. Oh, the 5k actually was great, but the puppy, however, is like a wrecking ball. Pure muscle and speed, and well, a puppy. So puppy and my knee had a collision and I am again learning patience and how to slow down.
In the meantime, my amazing daughter is joining me on a nutritional journey. She likes to cook and make meals, and I feel a bit like I have my very own healthy chef. I love that girl!
So, what are some challenges you have been facing lately? How do you stay encouraged?
Me? I surround myself with people who care.
